  • On may 19, 1936 a very large force of Comanche warriors accompanied by Kiowa and Kichai allies attacked the fort and killed several of its inhabitants. During this raid the Comanches seized 5 captives including Cynthia Ann. The others were eventually released but Cynthia was not, and she remained with the Indians for about 25 year.
